Landry signs $75 million contract extension with Browns

The Cleveland Browns have signed wide receiver Jarvis Landry to a five-year, $75 million contract extension. The team acquired Landry last month in a trade with Miami. Landry made the Pro Bowl three times in four seasons for the Dolphins. The contract is a major commitment by the Browns, considering that Landry has yet play a game for them. The 25-year-old gives Cleveland a much needed playmaker and he'll improve a team that went 0-16 last season and 1-31 the past two years.

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns have signed wide receiver Jarvis Landry to a five-year, $75 million contract extension, a major commitment before his first game or reception.

A three-time Pro Bowler acquired last month in a trade with Miami, Landry was at the team’s headquarters Friday as the Browns continued preparations for an NFL draft that may re-shape their franchise.

Landry led the NFL with 112 catches last season and scored nine touchdowns, two more than Cleveland’s entire receiving corps.

The 25-year-old will make an immediate impact for a Cleveland team that lost all 16 games last season and is 1-31 in two years under coach Hue Jackson.

The Browns have the No. 1 and No. 4 overall picks and are expected to select a quarterback. However, that pick is likely to spend at least one season backing up newly acquired QB Tyrod Taylor, who will have Landry as a target.
